    Hmmm… i got an email alert for 'electric bike' for this post.

    Do you have any sales on electric bikes more suitable for cruising around town and possibly commuting?

  • N.W/G.W: 17 Kg (Without Battery) / 21 Kg (Battery Installed)

    • I suspect these specs are for the single battery version, the batteries are a bit over 4kg each so the dual battery version would be around 25kg…

      (ya have to wonder about sellers that cant even get their specs correct)

      • What if it's the correct weight because maybe they're selling the single battery?

        Can rep confirm the dual battery version is being sold

        • In the description above the rep says:
          Battery: 48V / 31Ah Li-on Lithium Battery (Double 48v, 15.5Ah)

          The rep rarely answers questions or comments on his deals…

    I know nothing about this bike but it certainly appears a very flexible, practical option for not much coin so have a vote!

    • it’s ok for food or parcel delivery, not for commute, at work we hang our bikes from a rack, 20kg is a fair bit of weight to lift, also unless you can park on ground floor of your home, not sure how this goes in the elevator of an apartment or carrying up or down stairs …

      but for my weekend shopping this could replace my car …..

  • As per all the e-scooter posts, buyer beware that anything with a throttle control (i.e. not a pedal assist electric bike) is technically illegal and you can cop a bunch of fines for driving an unregistered/uninsured etc. motor vehicle.

    Having said that, there seem to be a ton of these being ridden by food delivery drivers in and around the Sydney CBD so as with e-scooters again, it doesn't appear to be very heavily enforced.

      Agree for this bike, but I thought it was OK with a 200W motor to have throttle control

      • +1

        You're absolutely correct, my blanket statement was wrong. I had thought there was a 10km/h speed limit on 200W vehicles, but no it appears that if it's 200W and throttle controlled you're allowed up to 25km/h, same as a pedelec. Thanks for the correction.

        Warning is still valid for this one as it's throttle controlled and rated at 250W and therefore technically illegal to ride on public roads/footpaths etc.

        • Yep, previous posts by this brand have had the same issue.

          Simply disconnecting the throttle would actually make this bike fit the definition of a pedelec, so the 250 W motor would then be okay. So if people are concerned, that’s an easy fix to make it road legal.

  • 48V / 31Ah <—- BIG BOI 😮

    • +1

      Yeah the batteries alone are worth over $1k

      • My current whip uses a single 48V 21Ah (1008Wh) Lithium Nickel Cobalt Manganese (Li-NCM) battery and I'm too scared to ask what a replacement costs. 😫

  • Can't seem to find any reviews/videos on this?

    What are the recommended alternatives are out there? (cargo ebikes)

    • +2

      At around this price point, the most common electric cargo bike is the G20:-

      https://eunorau-ebike.com/products/eunorau-2448v500w-mid-mot...

      Its still significantly more expensive.

    • This is a pretty low-spec bike from a no-name brand.

      In this style (two wheel, mid tail cargo bike) some models to consider from established brands include:
      Yuba Sweet Curry
      Ezee Expedir
      Eunorau G20 (as mentioned above)
      Tern GSD

      They do cost considerably more. But you definitely get what you pay for with bicycles.

      • does have front & rear hydraulic disc brakes at least, which should be standard on all ebikes.

        • This thing doesn't have running boards either, which would make it tricky with the kids

      • A tern GSD is $7500 is it 3 time better than this bike? I'd be curious to know.

        • +1

          I think Tern bikes are generally overpriced across their entire range. But they also have good resale value. Whereas when the cheap components on a no-name brand bike wear out after a couple of years, there isn’t much value left. This is especially noticeable with batteries. Cheap e-bikes use cheap batteries, which become pretty useless very quickly.

            @mister_snrub: not sure about cheap vs buying a bike costing 2-3 the price, components, it has shimano altus so some of the running gear is std fit, and aluminium frame, the killer replacements are the motor if not serviced and especially the batteries when they wear out …. it’s not like some of these bikes are priced due to carbon fibre frame or they come with shimano durace brakes …..more marketing and after sales parts support for electrical. Bearings and other parts are std across bike industry…..don’t own electric bike but for my commuter and weekend carbon fibre ride i get most of my parts on-line as the parts are industry std excluding the frame …. not sure what specifics justifies the high price tags of some of the other brands people mention cost 2-3 x more.
